Overview

Internationally recognized. Outstanding simulation facilities. Grads are in high demand. Work in Canada or anywhere in the world!

Students are immersed in an internationally recognized co-operative marine engineering cadet program designed in co-operation with Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security (TCMSS) and Canada’s shipping companies. Students focus on developing competencies required to function as part of a shipboard marine engineering team. Content includes, and is based upon, the TCMSS Engineering Officer Education Training (EOET) program requirements.

The final two semesters are open to anyone holding an STCW Reg. III/1 Marine Engineer Certificate of Competency. These students can apply for advanced standing exempting them from the first two years of the program. Upon completion of semesters five and six, they may be exempted from written examinations for 2nd and Chief Engineer Officer.

Grads get great jobs

Marine industry employers like what they see in our graduates. A shortage of qualified engineering and navigation officers in Canada and abroad means our graduates are in demand. Our graduates find rewarding jobs with rapid advancement, working on the great lakes and on ships at sea worldwide. Starting salaries range from $58,000 to $70,000.

Hands-on experience

Students learn through a progressive mix of skills training, shipboard training and academic studies, including navigation training in our marine simulators. The program involves four academic semesters accompanied by two mandatory co-op terms. Engineering cadets (students) get a total of 210 days of sea time over those two work terms.

This program is accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE).

This accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for co-operative education programs in Canada, and recognizes Georgian’s commitment to quality in co-op education.

Note: This is a TCMSS approved program.

Career opportunities

Graduates are educated and trained to become marine engineer officers of the watch. They may find a rewarding career as a ship’s engineering officer on board commercial vessels such as bulk carriers, tugs, ferries, tankers, cruise ships, coast guard and fishing vessels throughout Canada and the world.

This program may also lead to positions of leadership in the marine industry. Graduates may earn academic exemptions and credentials to advance to Chief Engineer pending further shipboard experience and higher level short training courses.
